‘Douche du Jour’: Indiana Official: “Use Live Ammunition” on Wisconsin Protesters

Jeff Cox, an Indiana deputy attorney general, is no stranger to inflammatory remarks. He’s called President Barack Obama “incompetent and treasonous,” he’s called environmentalists “enviro-Nazis,” he’s compared union members to Hitler’s brownshirts and he said a black teenage victim of police brutality deserved to be beaten up. His idea for winning the war in Afghanistan is “KILL! KILL! ANNIHILATE!”

Cox’s latest vitriolic outburst came on Twitter, where the Indiana official responded to a tweet from the progressive magazine Mother Jones about the possibility of riot police forcefully removing pro-union protesters from the Wisconsin state capitol building. According to Mother Jones, Cox tweeted back this chilling response: “Use live ammunition.” When pressed, Cox repeated: “You’re damned right I advocate deadly force.”

“You will probably try to demonize me,” Cox wrote to Mother Jones. But the outstanding magazine doesn’t have to; the Indiana official does a fine job of demonizing himself. I should say ex-Indiana official; according to Mother Jones and the Ft. Wayne Journal-Gazette, Jeff Cox “is no longer employed by the agency.”

Good riddance! I hear they’re hiring in Libya…
